Secondary root: Thinner lateral branches emerging from primary root.

Tertiary root: Very fine branches of secondary root.

Root-cap: Cap-like structure at root tip to protect it from injury.

Root hair: Very fine hair-like projections emerging from the skin-cells of root.

Fibrous root: A tuft of thread-like roots growing from the base of stem.
